Well, no need for that. You’ll soon be able to set up in front of the big screen at home, open one of those prized bottles you’ve saved for a special occasion, set out the cheese and crackers, and tune in to Decanted, A Winemaker’s Journey.
In this gorgeous new feature-length documentary, which releases on iTunes on February 28, director Nicholas Kovacic takes us on a tour we could never have by car.
